Research Interest


My research focuses on inequality, race/ethnicity, and education by examining how school choice and the "marketization" of primary and secondary schools interacts with other forms of categorical inequality such as class and race. I am working to apply theories of markets from economic sociology to understand the origin and effects of market-based school reform. Prior research includes an undergraduate thesis on the charter school movement and its divergent goals of improving educational equality vs. improving school quality, and an MA thesis on the perceptions of diversity among parents in New York City elementary schools.
